  • Lumbee Solider Killed in Iraq

    Joshua Deese, a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina was killed this past weekend while serving in Iraq. He was an Army Ranger. Josh and I went to high school together and he is an alumni of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. He was also a member of my organization, a native fraternity called Phi Sigma Nu, Inc. You can view pictures of Josh on our website at We are truly saddened by his loss. I will keep everyone posted on any additional developments.

    Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
